When you get to the first screen with the VMWare icon saying double-click to install, if double-clicking it creates no further action, you should try the following:
Navigate to your applications folder. It should be in the left nav bar in finder. If not, you can do a Spotlight search for it in the top right hand corner of your OSX menu bar
Make sure you download the VMWare Fusion Professional Edition. I would uninstall your existing VMWare installation and try reinstalling after downloading from here:
Update: The course documentation states the license is 365 days, however, my license expired after the official end of the course, on or about Jan. 1, 2015. I didn't start the course or register VMWare Fusion until early Spring of 2014, so it is possible that the licenses expire at the end of each course and not via a timed mechanism.
